You know that Canadian World Domination website? I really thought it was satire. I'm not so sure anymore.

Somewhere in Canada, the Generals are celebrating.

The actual site seems to be down, though; I got the link from web archives. It's gone undercover, probably.

How about you get Toronto Sucks stuck in your head for a while? You planted it in mine, once.

BTW, is that funny money in your wallet? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA!!!!!!

*gloats*

But naturally here, it's a big whine-fest about how we're all going out of business because we can't sell our goods cheap anymore.

Honestly, if there's some complain-y angle, we'll find it. It's one of our charms. I know it's a fairly valid concern, it's just the whining that gets to me. *whines*

I dunno what happened. I was playing the organ at the time.

I know next to nothing about economics (I TRY to figure stuff out but it all ends up turning into Klingon), but bad points aside, there has got to be plenty of Canadian chest-thumping going on.

Very little gloating, actually. Here in Ontario the liberal government is not happy with this rise and of course cross-border shopping is more prevalent than ever before. I still hate paying $36 for a book that sells for $29 in the US but I just can't justify waiting for hours and hours in line to get in and out of Barfalo.

Saskatchewan and Alberta are raking it in, though. I think I'm going to move there. Saskatchewan, that is. I like flat lifeless places.

See, now, I still don't get that, especially for the books that are written and published in Canada. It sounds just a little like highway robbery, y'know?

Another reason to move to Saskatchewan is that it's hard to spell. However, so is Massachusetts, and it's warmer (most of the time) so I think I'll go there instead.

P.S. The only paper money in my wallet is actually a Canadian $5 bill because I never bothered to take it out after my last trip. I figure if I ever find myself suddenly in Canada (and okay, Suddenly in Canada SO needs to be the name of the next reality TV show)at least I've got enough for bus fare.

I hear that's where they're dropping the next batch of Survivor contestants, God help them. That huge country and not a single road sign off the highways anywhere. Just miles and miles (oh, excuse me, kilometers and kilometers) of unmarked, possibly unnamed two lane roads stretching between far-flung, obscure towns that rise up out of nowhere like Superman's Fortress of Solitude.

And btw? Now that I am officially an American Express Cardholder, I CAN GET STRATFORD TICKETS THIS SATURDAY!!!! So I need to know ASAP (by Friday night) exactly which shows you want tickets to. For absolute sure, my agenda is:

Hamlet
Romeo & Juliet
The Taming of the Shrew

Other possibilities are:

The Trojan Women
Love's Labour's Lost

Lemme know which of these are on your absolute agenda. BY FRIDAY NIGHT.

It's actually kilometres and kilometres, but we won't split hairs.

...of unmarked, possibly unnamed two lane roads stretching between far-flung, obscure towns that rise up out of nowhere like Superman's Fortress of Solitude.

Oh, pish, darling, they won't JUST be dropped off in Ontario. *g*

Anyway, I hate Survivor, so I vote for Suddenly in Canada being its own show. One of the challenges is certain to be sticking some poor unsuspecting thing behind the wheel of a car in the middle of downtown Toronto. At night.

Or, y'know, they could do something with dogsleds.

I'm at work now (double shift), but I'll email tomorrow about the tickets. If you don't hear from me, call me and yell at me. DEFINITELY Hamlet.

ah, you corrected the spelling of kilometres. Excellent.

;P

I corrected the Canadian spelling of kilometres. It's kilometers in United Statsean. But since my pitch to the entertainment industry is for a show about Canada, well. Besides, teasing peacey is fun! ;)

And anyway, Why oh Why can't there be one standard of spelling? *angsts* I've written in a mishmash of Brit and US spelling since I was around twelve because I think Brit is prettier, but gah, it's all so confusing! I have three separate spellcheck dictionaries on my computer, just for English. I haven't even tried to figure out Australian spelling, which I'll bet is an even different set of rules.

Just shorten every word to one syllable and add "o" at the end, and you'll be fine in Australian.

*ducks in case Australians are reading this*
